Catching Up and Slowing Down

I think I start off 3/4 of my blogs with “I suck at blogging.”

I’m not ashamed to admit it.  While I’d love to be a good blogger, I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m not.  Maybe I will be in the future with persistence and organization and patience, but right now, my life is going every possible way imaginable and blogging isn’t on my mind 90% of the time.

Let me catch you up with going on in my life over the past few months outside of shoots.

– I got engaged to my best friend.  We’ve been together for 2.5 years and are getting married in June.  I really couldn’t be happier if I tried.  He’s one of the best things that’s ever happened to me, and I know that sounds cliche, but it’s true.


– I spent the summer traveling and taking photos and learning and stuff.  Ethan and I along with my dad and brother, Micah, went to San Francisco for a little while.  I loved it.  It was very fast paced, but marvelous.  I plan (fingers crossed) to have a post over summer travels.  Ethan and I then traveled to Seattle and had a ball.  It was a lot more chill that San Fran, which was a nice change in pace.  About 3 days after our trip, my mom’s side of the family and I went to Colorado.  It was beautiful.  Again, I plan on posting some photos.


– I celebrated my 21st birthday!  Woohoo! To be honest, I’m not particularly thrilled by alcohol.  I went to a bar last weekend with some friends and got a gin and tonic…it sucked.  Anyway, maybe alcohol just isn’t my thing.


– I started my senior year of college.  I’m taking 18 hours right now.  I’m trying to figure out how to survive.


– I also started work back at Coolgreens.  It’s a love/hate relationship for us.  I love the steady income and people I work with, but sometimes I feel like my life revolves around there.


– We started planning our wedding (well, I’ve basically had it planned in my head for a while).  We have a photographer and videographer booked, invitations drawn up, colors selected, ceremony and reception venue booked, I FOUND MY DRESS, and that’s about it.  I’m trying to calm down because I realize we have a long time to get everything finalized.


– I made a list of 23 things I want to accomplish before I turn 22.  I’ll blog it.


– I started re-reading the Harry Potter books.  I get so giddy when I read them.  Harry and everyone will always be a part of my life.  I’m currently on Prisoner of Azkaban.


– I thought up (what I think will be an incredible) photo series.  I’m anxious to start shooting for it once I get a little more organized and used t my insane schedule.


– We’ve been having game nights about once a week.  I love game nights.  We’ve been inviting new people too…not just the old ones.  I hope to blog about our weekly/bi-weekly game nights.


– I completely freaked out about Pretty Little Liars last night.  One of my best friends, Sydney, and I were legitimately shocked.  I was silent for about 4 hours, juts trying to process everything going on.  Can’t wait for the Halloween episode or Season 3B.


Welp, that’s about it.
Right now, I’m organizing and cleaning my room before I start making supper.  My poor fella isn’t feeling well, so homemade chicken noodle soup is on the menu.


Guys, I really hope to be back on a schedule soon.

I’ll leave you with the cutest picture ever:

(It’s a baby gorilla reacting to a cold stethoscope.  And I want one.)

    Sydney - Ethan too? I hope I didn’t pass it along to him somehow. I had to leave work early today. It was only my second day. I’m great at first impressions.

    I’m excited for game night tomorrow (: I’ll be there, even if I’m still feeling terrible.ReplyCancel
